SOURCE: bonnet will not open as clip on bonnet is gone.

Depending upon how familiar you might be with the location of the under-hood release, you may be able to access it through the small opening between the hood and grill that follows opening the bonnet by pulling the lever under the steering wheel. A long narrow standard head screwdriver and a good light may be all that is required. That is exactly how the mechanic at the VW garage will release the hood latch.

If your not at all familiar with the hood latch, it might be useful to view the mechanism in another Passat so that you know how it functions. Less than a 5 minute job, but the dealer will likely charge about $65 to perform the task, substantially more to replace the broken mechanism.

SOURCE: VW Bora: Can't open bonnet

first of all not an easy job,you need to get the front grill off and look upwards for a cover that will be covering up the bonnet catch,basicly bend or pull this off,you should then see were the cable goes in,then you should be able to bar the catch with a screwdriver to release it. best of luck

SOURCE: renault clio bonnet wont open

Get a second person to pull bonnet catch and you push up and down on the bonnet whilst catch is being pulled. 1, cable possibly stretched, 2, look at bonnet catch under the coloum to see if wire is attached, 3, try and lie under car and look up the back of the bulkhead to see the catch and release it manually. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: bonnet will not open with key

Not sure if the solution can be applied to 2006 focus, I have an European Mk2 Focus which also having the same problem. Here is what you can try.

To Open:
1. Jack up the car on the lifter.
2. Open bottom engine cover.
3. Loosen two (10mm) screws which secure the bonnet lock assembly. The screws located between air manifold and radiator.
4. Once the screws released, disconnect the alarm cable/socket connected to the lock assembly.
5. Try pull open the bonnet, it may require little force to pull the bonnet open due to a little white plastic link (~1" long, plus (+)shaped) is still connected between the lock assy. and cable assy. Failure to release bonnet lock is only caused by this plastic link!
6. Once the bonnet opened, the cable assy can be detached by pulling it from engine side out. Inspect the plastic link if it worn out.

To Install:
1. Attach lock and cable assy. Ensure the plastic link is properly inserted in its place between lock and cable assy. Test the mechanism with the car key.
2. Insert the whole assembly from engine side out.
3. Secure with two 10mm screws, reconnect alarm cable.
4. Reinstall bottom engine cover.

Hope this help. Sorry for my English.

not really as it is a cable operation
being fiat it could be a fiat price but it most probably be generic which means that any bonnet cable with the same end will fit the job

Try to get a long pair of pliers to the hood latch. If that does not work try pulling on the entire cable housing.

How do you open the bonnet on a fiat punto elx 1.2 2001 as my bonnet cable has snapped


You should be able to get at it from under the vehicle if you have small enough arms and hands. The cable is at the top of the engine bay and connects to what looks like a curled piece of wire(which is the release catch). It is barely visible and diffycult to operate. Someone pressing down on the front centre of the hood (directly above the catch mechanism) will make things easier for the unfortunate individual that has to stick his head under the vehicle. It can be done without the need for tools. When you do get it open and need to replace the cable do not just pull the old cable out. It is a nightmare to replace without a draw wire. Fasten a piece of string or wire at least 2 meters(6-7 feet) to the old cable before removing it. Then remove the end of the string from the old cable and connect it to the new one before drawing the new cable into place using the draw wire. Some insulation tape over the end of the cable where it joins to the draw wire(to prevent it catching on something) will ease matters.

Hie,my fiat punto 2004 reg auto transmission,vibrates heavily when engine warms up.this happens when you stop and engage into (D) for drive.I have tried to drain and add new ATF oil but it won't solve...


This is likely not in your transmission. It sounds like you may also be experiencing some low acceleration and poor mileage. The open bonnet is indicative of needing repairs under the bonnet. It sounds like a probable misfire (i.e. bum spark plug or plug wire(lead)). This doesn't sound too major but do have it inspected before it becomes catastrophic in the future. Cheers and let me know if you need anything else. Just occurred to me, is this a diesel engine?

Missfire on cylinder 2 and can't open bonnet - Fiat Bravo '01


There are other, professional ways to get the bonnet open without having to break anything. Have someone push down on the hood a bit while someone else pulls on the release. If that doesnt work, you can get behind the grill and access the release by going under grill, find hood latch and pull release.
The misfire can be a number of things. Check for spark,Install a spark tester between spark plug and wire. If there is no spark, check wire, module, coil. If there is spark, check plug, Perform a compression check.
